After twenty-three years of relentless speculation, singer/songwriter Carly Simon has finally confirmed that one of the “so vain” subjects of her infamous song You’re So Vain, is actor Warren Beatty. She told PEOPLE, “I have confirmed that the second verse is Warren.”
Warren Beatty, this (officially) for you:
You had me several years ago, when I was still quite naive;
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair, and that you would never leave;
But you gave away the things you loved, and one of them was me;
And while Beatty is now 78, he started out in Hollywood as a young, spunky, heart-throb who was incredibly good looking and highly likely to be “so vain”.
